Stephane Da Costa for a forward project

Da Costa for a forward thats 20 or younger with 2nd or 3rd line potential playing in europe or college hockey that is 2-4 years away from having a chance of being an NHLer. Sens have too many forwards between the NHL & AHL so this is to make room for others by investing in a player that is a few years away from either.

Da Costa is never going to get a fair chance with the Sens and imo can still be a 40-50 point player given the opportunity, maybe even as soon as this season.

We have zero need for De Costa I would much rather try to develop Gardiner. We have good center depth right now in the NHL De Costa does not upgrade it.

Boom bust 2nd line center. Small but highly skilled with the puck, remains to be seen if he'll be an NHLer. If he is, it will never be as bottom 6 player.

Playmaking center. His vision and passing ability is high-end. Decent goal scorer. Good skater but not as fast as most players his size. Just very skilled.

He's 5'10 but his size shouldn't be a problem. He's bad in the corners but definitely tries. Meh defensively. He's as soft as his hands are.

I would think the Flames would have some interest in Da Costa and I think Da Costa could really benefit from playing in Hartley's fast up-tempo offensive kind of coaching, just don't know what we could offer, possibly Matt Deblouw?

This is from Hockeyfuture.com
DeBlouw is a speed-burner who projects to be a solid defensive forward should he arrive in the NHL. Although he has decent size, DeBlouw could stand to add some mass to his 6-1 frame. While not possessing great offensive skill, he has enough ability in this area that he could be more than strictly a defensive forward.

From the brief times I have seen him play he seems like he could become a solid bottom 6 player, however IMO Calgary has enough of bottom 6 type prospects and I would rather have a skilled C like Da Costa

I would think a pick would be more appealing for the Sens. He was a free pick-up, and they already have an excess of players entering into the pro ranks this and next year. The reason to trade Da Costa would be to give him a fair chance (I believe he can play on the NHL, not with Ottawa due to their young center depth) and to create room for the prospects coming into the AHL to develop. Getting a pick gives them time to develop the guys now, and give time for another new guy 2-3 years down the road.
